All Clad GiveAway for Valentine’s Day: 3 QT Stock Pot with Lid and Ladle

All Clad is definitely worth EVERY penny, but this time, you get to WIN it!

ANNOUNCING the winner: Monica at https://twitter.com/Macgyyver Congratulations Monica!!! and thanks to so many of you who chimed in with your stories and tweets. I LOVE this product, and it is clear you do too!

My 12 inch sauté pan was my first All Clad acquisition. Oh, my. I had coveted an All Clad skillet since dinner at Janet’s when she cooked with hers. Just handling the pan excited me. It was heavy, substantial, gorgeous, and cleaned up like a charm. Actually, that is one of the main reasons I love this cookware. Not only does it cook evenly, but it cleans up effortlessly. If there is any crusting or something that would normally need a scouring clean on another kind of cookware, with All Clad, I just wash it out. Seriously. I wouldn’t believe me, either, but it is just the truth.

Then I got my All Clad Braiser. Love it. As I had a couple of Le Creuset’s, and that is all one needs of those, it was definitely All Clad time! To me, that is all I need in my kitchen. A couple of heavy Le Creuset’s and five or six pieces of All Clad; it will last a few life times! I really use mine and they still look like new. That is the third thing I love about them!

And the second? How well they cook, of course! They evenly distribute the heat and actually “make me a better cook”. Sigh, it is true.

Valentine’s Day is often filled with anticipation, excitement, joy or angst. Sugar Cookies were big when my gals were young. Loved making them and giving them away over this holiday. Way better than any card, was my thinking. But the girls? Had to have the cards, too! Other than that, honestly, it has really not been a “big deal” in our house. However, as a teacher, every year, I would have my students, regardless of age, cut out big hearts from a spectrum of florescent Valentine reds and pinks and write their name on top in black felt pen. Then, we would have a complete hour of absolute silence – every single year – as the hearts were passed around the room and each student would write one very positive “thing” admired about the person whose name was on the top of each heart. Yes, even the boys loved this activity. I have learned, over the years, that these hearts have been cherished and are saved in many a precious keepsakes box. Yes, this is a day of love, and sharing love. Can’t have enough of that, eh?

I laughed when Jim Whitesell, a local photographer, told me what he says to chefs that say, “Your camera sure takes good photos! That is a really great camera, Jim!” His reply? “And your pots sure cook great food!” But, I have to say, using All Clad has increased my pleasure in cooking and decreased any possibility of burnt or overcooked foods through the incredible fabrication of this product.

Now, I don’t have this or any stock pot from All Clad, yet. (Are you reading this, Vanja?) The stock pots are next on my list. Little by little I am setting up my collection, so this is an incredible giveaway! Something I absolutely covet. I would LOVE to have this and would be working hard to win it! I hope you feel the love and do the same.

  1. I need this All-Clad stock pot and ladle because I need one on my own! I’m planning to move out within the next year and recently learned my mom’s traditional pho broth (we’re Vietnamese). I’m in the middle of taking a stock and soup cooking course at NAIT as well and I need something to cook my stocks in! First recipe I’ll try: definitely my mom’s pho broth and incorporating what I learned in the course to make it my own!

  2. Way Back in 1995, when my husband, then boyfriend and I started dating the very first Valentines day we were in Northern Italy at a World Championship Biathlon races and he gave me this cute little stuffed frog that had a secret opening were he stuck some Italian Chocolates. Included was a note that professed his undying love for me for the first time! Still makes me smile to remember it!

    • Valerie Lugonja says:

      Ntala!
      What a romantic frog-prince story! And a Biathlon! I am not surprised seeing those muscles in your post pressing the asiago!

  3. A special Valentine dinner for my husband and I would be Bacon Wrapped Filet Mignon with bearnaise sauce, roasted potatoes, and fresh grilled asparagus. Dessert would be a beautiful Tiramisu.

      I read your other comment first – and now I know we share a similar joie de vivre! I love everything on your menu and tiramisu is a favourite here for special occasions, too!

  4. A very special Valentine Day for me was when I was working up in Northern BC, my Birthday is on Feb 12th, and my husband sent me a dozen roses, then on Feb 14th he sent me a dozen more. I was staying at a hotel and what he didn’t remember was I was flying home on the 15th. I couldn’t leave all these beautiful roses, so I took them with me on the plane. I was surprised they let me (this was 20 years ago)
    but they did, and I looked ridiculous the entire flight holding these two big vases of roses.

  5. What a thrilling contest and it couldn’t have come at a better time. We’re 24 hourse into a power outage caused by high winds. We have three huge trees down in the back yard and 10 local chickens in my big chest freezer that are now in danger of thawing. Looks like I might be making pots and pots of chicken soup for the whole neighbourhood (in my mom’s kitchen, she still has power). A snazzy stock pot would really come in handy. In fact, it would almost make the power outage worth while.

    • Valerie Lugonja says:

      Bridget!
      That is dreadful! But, you are clearly resilient! Wish we were closer (don’t want to be in the storm!) so I could help you make all of that soup! LOVE making chicken soup. It really is good for the soul! I came home once after a power outage to an entire freezer infested with indescribable things. Hauled the entire thing to the dump and cried. Family watching the house thought all kicked back in and didn’t realize that they needed to manually restart the freezer. It was old. I do know that a freezer filled with frozen food will stay frozen for a long while without power. My fingers are crossed for you: that you get your power back on, AND win the pot!
      Looking forward to meeting you at the Canadian Food Bloggers Conference! Thank you SO much for stopping by!
      :)

  6. My favourite Valentine’s Day meal would be a lovely slow roasted beef roast, mashed potatoes with gravy, colourful beets, and green beans. For dessert a simple strawberry shortcake. I know, I know….they would have to be California berries, but for this I’ll break the rules.

  7. My best Valentine’s Day EVER happened almost 18 years ago…my son was born. I also got a large box of chocolates that day, but nothing beat that beautiful baby.

  8. This stock pot looks so gorgeous and the ladle is a bonus! I make soup stock all the time – this would enhance the process. I freeze the stock or make a batch of soup to eat and freeze leftovers. So my first recipe in it would have to be chicken stock and then maybe chicken lentil soup.

  9. I have 6 children and have always bought each a little solid chocolate heart to leave beside their pillow for when they wake up. As they have left the nest I find I still automatically buy the same number of hearts. The older ones don’t get it by their pillow anymore, but it gets passed on when I see them. Fortunately for me, they all live in the same town :)

      What a lovely story. I find myself still buying lifesaver booklets every year at Christmas for my adult daughters. I completely get it.

  10. I liked you on FB :)

  11. Besides cooking a good meal, our Valentine’s tradition was born of hard times. It was our first year of marriage and we’d just moved into a crumbling rental house in Ottawa (which we’d soon get out of!) and were waiting for my new job to begin (and pay me!). Knowing I couldn’t spend any more than about $10 on my husband, I decided to make him a “love mix” CD of songs we liked on the radio and that he had been humming around the house. He loved it and we had a dance party (just us) that cold and snowy Valentine’s day, with a pot of Morrocan stew (beans: cheap!) burbling away on the stove. Now, he gets a new love mix every year.

    By the way, said amazing husband got me my first baby All Clad pot for Christmas this year and it is now one of my favourite things in the kitchen. I would LOVE to expand the collection . . .

    February 14, 1980.

    Just met the gal I would marry 5 days before. If it wasn’t love at first sight, it was darn close. I was so excited that I bought her flowers, chocolates and couldn’t wait to give them to her.

    Something worked-engaged in May, married in October, and about to celebrate our 33rd year together February 9.

    Thanks for the opportunity to enter this draw.

  14. Best V-Day ever was first one with now hubbie – it was total last minute and we were both so nervous as we had only been dating a couple of weeks. Seventeen years later we are still together and the Italian restaurants is still there!

  15. I want it because All Clad is the best! I’d make chicken stock in it first! It’s always a great thing to have on hand!

    My partner and I like to keep it simple for special dinners so that we have time to relax together – we especially love boiled lobster with lemon brown butter for dipping. If we attempt to make any sides (that inevitably go uneaten), we do the jalapeno-lime slaw from Rebar and mashed potatoes!

  18. My husband and I have been married 36 years this month so over the years have celebrated Valentine’s in many ways. In the early years, I made dinner at home – always the exact menu of the first meal I cooked for him when we were dating which has always been a fav (..Italian style pork roast…). :) Over time our budget improved so then we had several years of fine dining but now, in recent years, have decided a quiet nite at home is once again more appealing. Sooo…best Valentine’s…just a few years ago my husband told me not to worry about cooking at all. Wasn’t sure what he had planned then he arrived home with a five course meal in hand (prepared by a chef we knew). Wine was opened, candles were lit…a very romantic evening with great food and much appreciation for hubby’s thoughtfulness. :)

    • Valerie Lugonja says:

      Selina!
      That is rare! So thoughtful. Every woman reading this will want to meet your husband! Lucky you!

  22. Retweeted this post already, finally commenting.
    Best Valentine’s Day – the first Vday we spent in our new home, woke up to find a new food processor sitting in the kitchen! Hardly romantic for some people, as it was pointed out by my significant other’s colleagues. To me, it was perfect because 1. unexpected, we were not supposed to be exchanging gifts 2. the exact model I wanted for a while so paid keen attention.

    I need this stock pot because I always look at All-Clad pots/pans but cannot bite the bullet and buy one (the other problem is, which one?)
    They are all beautiful! The first thing I would to make with this is my dad’s chicken soup recipe. Not just any chicken but soup made with Silkie chicken, a blue black flesh chicken .

    • Valerie Lugonja says:

      Lesley!
      First, completely get the thrill of that gift. ANY kitchen gift is romantic to me – as I love them more than perfume (not as much as diamonds) ;)
      Where do you get Silkie Chicken? I am very curious about this?
      :)
      V
      PS
      Once you get your first All Clad, there will be no going back. I can guarantee that!

      • Val!
        You can get them at Asian grocery stores. However, sometimes it is a bit daunting (even for me) to look for ingredients I haven’t used before at the Asian grocers. My parents tipped me off that you can get Silkie chickens at Save-On-Foods. They are with the other frozen chickens and they are smaller birds than regular chickens.
        Hope I am lucky enough to win this All-Clad experience!

  23. I would love this all clad because I have always loved to cook but feel I am finally coming into my own by baking our family bread and planning all our meals. We used to eat out at least once a week and managed the month of January to only eat out once! I love being able to cook at home and provide our family with home made, delicious, and (mostly) healthly meals!

  24. Heather Jewell says:

    My partner and I don’t really celebrate Valentine’s day other than me making him some silly card, BUT, who could give up the opportunity to have delicious chocolate dessert? We often go out for dinner around Valentine’s day and come home and have flourless chocolate cake: http://www.epicurious.com/recipes/food/views/Flourless-Chocolate-Cake-14478#ixzz2JCwIxMKO

    • Valerie Lugonja says:

      Heather!
      I have made a Cassis Flourless chocolate cake for years that I have not posted. You have reminded me. Yes! The ultimate decadent sweet.
      :)

  25. Heather Jewell says:

    The best Valentine’s day ever was a few year’s ago. My partner and I were living in different cities and he flew in to Toronto for reading week which started on the 14th. That night he proposed while we were lying in bed. Now, we ended up not getting married and just deciding to grow old together without a ceremony, but it was still the best Valentine’s day ever.

  26. Our Valentine’s tradition has always been to celebrate the weekend before, as that’s when the prices at the fancy restaurants are less and it’s easier to get a reservation and it’s a bit more private, without all the other couples around you. Then for the actual Valentine’s Day, we just have dinner at home and watch a movie.

  27. 1. Best Valentine’s Day is a tough one for me. I met my husband on Valentine’s Day. I married him five years later on Valentine’s Day. I *almost* had our second baby on Valentine’s Day, too… labour started on the 14th but it took until the 15th!
    2. I need this pot because I’m going back to work soon after a mat leave, and I need to made some big recipes to freeze off! Plus it’s so shiny.

  28. I did the Tweet and Liked you on FB. Thanks!

  29. I need this soup pot because I only have one right now. This makes life hard when I’m making spaghetti with homemade sauce. I have to make my sauce and then put it in Tupperware so I can boil the noodles. Silly, right?

    So, I would make spaghetti first.

  30. On valentines day, I make my family homemade heart shaped pizza. It’s pretty fun and my 4 year-old loves helping with the dough.

  31. Sauerkraut with pork, loads of sauerkraut, onions chopped, garlic, pork cubbed, slow cooked for hours with paprika til the pork melts in your mouth. This is special because my husband learned to make it for me

    My best valentine is when my husband bought me a used vintage bike, just a really cool old bike made in Canada

    I would like the All Clad Stock Pot and ladle, cos mine is a cheap, everything tastes tinny feeble thing with holes about to poke through

    My first meal with the All Clad Stock pot would be homemade onion chicken pea soup

    Followed on twitter @travelluna and facebook as Emilia Turner

    https://twitter.com/travelluna/status/297844190535102464

  32. I would love to have that lovely pot. I have a few All Clad pieces already but not that one. If I win it, my first recipe would be a braised wild boar roast. Now I am going straight to Facebook ’cause I don’t do Twitter unfortunately. I will reread to see if I can enter again!

  33. My wife and I go to McDonald’s every year for Valentine’s day…just because we don’t buy into the whole “have to spend a lot of money” Valentine’s day propaganda that restaurants and retailers push! @kanuk81

  34. Hello! What a lovely giveaway!

    The first recipe I would make with this stock pot would have to be a good fatty pork stock – I have a serious ramen problem, and stockpile pork bones in my freezer. It takes so many to make a good one, but boy is it worth it when I can manage it.

    The best Valentine’s Days have always been at home – a surprise breakfast of pancakes and bacon on a weekday makes my husband day. Nothing exceptionally fancy. We have a little three-year-old, so Valentine’s involves making many cards for his classmates and whatnot these days!

    Also – I followed you on Twitter and liked your Facebook page for the first time. Fingers crossed!

  35. I don’t know if it’s my favourite Valentine’s meal, but my favourite Valentine’s post was last year when I managed to work sweet potatoes and Romeo and Juliet into one analogy. http://ofmusesandmeringues.blogspot.ca/2012/02/sweet-potatoes.html

  36. The best Valentine’s Day I ever had was a couple of years ago when my husband and I stayed in and had dinner with our two sweet girls. I made spaghetti and meatballs because I knew everyone would eat it! We played board games together after dinner. Maybe not romantic, but very memorable and special.

  37. I’d love to win the contest, and the first thing I’d use it for would be chicken soup.

  38. I’m not sure this was a favorite but it was a memorable one.. after the fact. I was away, home visiting sick family and my partner was back at our home overseas. Somewhere along the way I must have said I wished I received flowers more often. Nothing was said, no registering that the wish was acknowledged. Valentines day came and went and was OK with a long distance catch up on the telephone. But 10 days later I was in my family’s garden (where I was staying) noticing how the latest snow fall was melting and I saw a box on the rafters underneath the deck. I brought it inside thinking it was garbage. As I was breaking it down I realised it was an unopened package – and when I opened it up discovered it was a dozen long stem red roses (totally frozen) and a dilapidated note, from my partner. Turns out he’d advised the florist to leave on the front step, they put it on the back. And because it was a surprise he didn’t want to mention it to me. So quite sweet, after the fact!

  39. My husband has made it his tradition to play in a pool tournament every valentines’s weekend and so i have made it mine now to invite a friend of mine and her son over to have dinner with me and my son!

  40. Wow great contest. I just upgraded to stainless steel not long ago but not all clad.

    Best St-Valentine I would say was last year. My (now ex) bf’s birthday is the 15th so we combined his birthday and St-Valentines day. We did not hing out of the ordinary but I saw what a romantic preson he could be and it was nice breakin the St-Val pressure with a birthday.

  41. Point 2…well single and hve not ben always with someone on St-Val. So I would say a tradition is to never stay home alone. I alwasy have a girls night out with the single gals or guys. I see it as an important tradition.

  42. Following you now on Twitter (I have no idea why not before)

  43. ANd liked your facebook page :-)

  44. I would love to win the All Clad stockpot because I make stock ALL the time, but in pots that are too small to make *enough* stock. Your enthusiasm for this product has me thinking! I do need to replace my cookware – ESPECIALLY since I learned to love cooking last year, I’ve learned that the hand-me-down pots and pans I got when I moved out 15 years ago just aren’t ENOUGH anymore. Wish me luck!

    I’d christen this stock pot and make the veggie stock recipe from Food in Jars – it’s so good!

  45. I would love to win this stock pot – not for me but for my mom – because she makes all these amazing Chinese soups and she’s been using the same pot forever. I keep telling her that I think she could use a new one but she refuses to throw away the old one while it’s still good (still good is a relative term in my opinion!). The first recipe I would ask her to make is this black silkie chicken soup with chinese herbs – it’s my favorite soup that she does.

    • Valerie Lugonja says:

      Hey Diane
      This is the second person that said black silkie chicken soup would be their first dish in this pot. We don’t even raise those in Alberta, do we? I must find out! Good like and thanks for entering the draw! Love my All Clad!

  46. One of my best Valentine’s Days was actually not spent with a significant other but with some of my best friends. We were all single university students and decided that Valentine’s Day didn’t have to just be for lovers but rather a day where we celebrated everyone we loved so we had a huge potluck dinner with lots of great food and wine – it definitely became a tradition throughout the rest of our university days.

  47. My favorite V-day meal is usually a trio of fondues! First is cheese with bread; then a fondue chinois; followed by a chocolate fondue. Hubby is from Quebec, so he’s fond of fondue, so to speak.

    My most memorable Valentine’s day meal was at the Harvey’s at West Edmonton Mall after playing mini golf! It was the first V-day spent with my husband and he later tole me it was a trick. He wanted to see if I was the kind of girl who expected to be wined and dined (which I was not). Seven years later, we’re looking forward to spending another special day together :)

    I would like this All-clad pot and ladle so that my All-clad frying pan won’t feel so lonely!! They are so expensive but so worth it.

    Looking forward to cooking turkey congee in it for my dad, who is undergoing chemotherapy.

    • Valerie Lugonja says:

      Josephine
      So sorry to hear about your dad. That is sad and I understand how difficult that is as my father is very ill, too.
      Best wishes.
      Valerie

  48. I I need it because I love spending time in the kitchen and it s a reason to try new dishes. I do not have a favorite recipe but will find a new one each year, last year I did filet mignonette with Madeira sauce. My tradition is I always want chocolates and cooking something new, last year I got a red kitchen aid kettle with chocolate we go small and cozy.

  49. Peggy Doyle says:

    I would love to have this as I make a lot of soups, especially during the winter. My favorite right now is curried chickpea soup from Dinner with Julie.

    • Valerie Lugonja says:

      Oh, MY! She is good, isn’t she! I must ask if you have tried the Porcini Chestnut Soup from A Canadian Foodie.
      (wink wink) :) V
      Good Luck!
      (Also love my Spicy Tomato Soup with Chickpeas)

  50. Peggy Doyle says:

    Also, don’t have any real Valentine’s traditions. Usually movie and pizza, because in 8 years we have been together my husband hasn’t been home for any of them. Lovely life of the military :)

    • Valerie Lugonja says:

      Peggy
      IF he is home on a Valentine’s Day, he will sure have a TALL order to fill with all those missed.

    Wow! What a a great contest! Finally something for us Canadians! ;-) Have tweeted and am already a follower..

    I would love to win the ALL CLAD Stockpot as I don’t own any ALL CLAD yet; I am certainly an admirer, but haven’t been able to dish out the cash… I also love to cook, especially soups-they’re my favorite to make. So more in likely, I’d make one of my fav soup recipes-like Jamie Oliver’s squash soup recipe from his ‘At Home’ cookbook. :)

    Thanks so much!

    Cheers, Julieanne

  52. I just need it — need it — need it — Cause I just burnt my present one BLACK–left it on with broth & barley and went out – SOooooooooooo the First thing I would make in the new one would be BEEF BARLEY VEGETABLE SOUP of course :) :) :) but I would stay home while it was cooking. :) :)

  53. Oh I forgot to say I think the best Valentines meal would be breakfast of Valentine shaped home made pancakes with strawberry fruit & whipped cream. The grandchildren would or I should say they did LOVE that.

  54. Andrew Pham says:

    Pretty much the exact same situation as Cindy (minus the cooking course) I too am Vietnamese and I would love to win the three quart All Clad Stock pot and ladle as I would love to own a good quality product to help me in my quest on making my mom’s Pho broth as well as many other traditional Vietnamese cuisine.

      What a great start of a new tradition, Ashley! I love it! You could make enough for the rest of the winter, easily – and heart shaped ones, for sure! Glad you like the giveaway. I do, too – and it is not all that often that there is a great opportunity like this for Canadian readers!

  59. I’d love to own this stockpot as I don’t have a stockpot! It would be great to make fabulous soups and stews in. One of the first dishes I would make would be chicken noodle soup.

  65. I would love to win this pot because last week I ruined one of our pots. I let it go dry and cool that way for a while!! I was in the basement and didn’t realize it has gone dry until the smoke detector went off. It was scary. I burnt a hot pad when I set the pot on it too. Wasn’t a great week in the kitchen! If I won this I would make a ham soup-I have a ham bone in the freezer waiting for me and this pot!!

  66. My favorite Valentine’s memory was when my boyfriend (now husband) wanted to cook a special meal for me. We has a nice dinner and were making a toast when we knocked over a glass of wine. The wine went all of the wall beside the table. We couldn’t do anything to wash it off the light paint. The next day we spent painting the wall a dark color to hide the wall. Whoever is living in that condo now likely has no idea why there is a dark brown feature wall!

    This pot seems great for an exorbitant amount of spicy Korean stew to help nurse my family and friends through the winter cold and flu season. Very excited about this contest! Thanks for having it!

      Will you share that Korean Recipe? I love Korean food, and to get an authentic homestyle recipe would be amazing!

    Hope you like my Banana Cream Pie I made for Valentines

  73. I’d love to make a chinese food chicken dish in this pot!

  74. When I was 22 I went on a Valentine’s day date with a lovely lady. I knew she loved the cocktail, ‘sex on the beach’. The ingredients of this cocktail are: vodka, peach schnapps, orange juice and cranberry juice. It makes for a great Valentine’s day drink. I’m digressing… so I knew she loved this drink so I took her to the best known cocktail bar in town and had rehearsed the line several times. I executed it correctly: “the lady would like to have sex on the beach.” We didn’t make it to end up at the beach that night, but it was a fun night nonetheless. – That’s my funny Valentine’s day story. Happy Valentine Day, Val!

  75. I love anything dishwasher safe! I’m a huge fan of Giada’s White Bean soup. With this pot I’ll make a large enough quantity to freeze some for quick meals. With my smaller Greenspan pot, I make a couple meals’ worth, and promptly eat them.

  76. I followed on twitter! (I thought I already was-apparently not!)
